The British National Party in Northern Ireland has written a letter of complaint about the GAA to the Equality Commission.
BNP regional organiser for Northern Ireland, Steven Moore, claims in the letter that the GAA “is likely to be in breach of The Fair Employment and Treatment (Northern Ireland) Order 1998”.
He has alleged that the GAA seeks to exclude unionists by flying the Irish flag at grounds and singing the Irish national anthem at matches.
“Furthermore,” Mr Moore writes, “some GAA grounds are named after prominent Republicans and have been used for Republican anti-British political commemorations contrary to the Association’s own rules.
“This creates an environment where unionists will feel intimidated, threatened and of less value than other citizens, because of their national identity.
“Effectively they are excluded from attending or participating in GAA in Northern Ireland.”
